According to ESPN’S Adam Schefter, the Carolina Panthers are expected to release Cam Newton. Newton has played his entire nine-year career in Carolina, and was selected to three Pro Bowls while holding the franchise record for most passing yards. He won the NFL’s MVP award in 2015 and led the team to a Super Bowl that same season. Last week, General manager Marty Hurney had this to say in regards to Newton, "One of the distinct pleasures of my career was selecting Cam with the first pick in the 2011 draft. Every year difficult decisions are made and they are never easy. We have been working with Cam and his agent to find the best fit for him moving forward and he will always be a Carolina Panther in our hearts."
